secretary hasn't missed a beat. she knows that the calling card of the democrats in the barack obama era is a polarizing politics that seeks to fire up minority voters by stirring fears of fire hoses and police dogs. its basic vocabulary is imputations of racism. its evidentiary standard is low and dishonest. and its ethic is whatever works so long as it stirs fear, anger, and resentment. get ready for hope and change 2.0. gene robinson, respond to both of those. >> well, number one, the only people i hear talking about fire hoses and police dogs are republicans. what i hear democrats saying is these are measures that are going to reduce african-american participation in elections. they're not talking about fire hoses. they're not talking about police dogs. that's sort of a red herring that keeps getting brought up on the other side to discredit what i consider legitimate arguments against these laws. second, i think in terms of hillary clinton we should acknowledge two possibilities. number one, she is laying the groundwork for a run for president in 2016. number two that this is someth

of headway in that direction. and a couple of summers ago, barack obama promised us a summer of recovery which did not pan out so well, but i think this summer has really been the summer of big government. we have seen through exposures to various leaks, a lot of details emerging about the national surveillance program and the extent to which ordinary americans are ensnared in that data mining and the surveillance that is supposed to be going on to protect the country. we have seen a lot of the flaws that are inherent in obamacare. we have watched the implementation of the affordable care act sort of greek and moaned. we have seen this trend starting tough run off of the tracks. think we are starting as a country to see what is in store for us as this health care law unfolds. nancy pelosi said that we needed to pass the bill to find out what was in it. the obama administration, jay carney yesterday in a press conference promised that once all the different provisions of the bill hans von spakovsky we were really going to like it. so far that does not seem to be the case. and we are start

in part this, one of the least attractive legacies of barack obama will be the way he empowered freshman senators to believe they were only one or two good speeches away from the presidency. right now the show horses of the united states senate are rand paul of kentucky, ted cruz of texas, and marco rubio of florida. all preparing for a 2016 presidential bid. all making visits to iowa. they're the new faces of the republican party. really, really new. the three of them have an average age of 45 and an average tenure in washington of 1.9 years. that's not necessarily a bad thing. >> no. it's awful. >> paul and cruz in particular tend to drive other republican senators nuts. asked by the new republic whether he would support rand paul or hillary clinton for president, mccain laughed and said, it's going to be a tough choice. actually, it wouldn't. if rand paul got nominated for president, mccain would be the honorary national chairman of republicans for hillary. >> you know, this is one of the things that, mike, has driven me crazy about republicans that have been talking about marco rubio
